In case you can't get it with Vise-grips...

Sock-it-out company makes a hex removal tool set which has bits that are tapered, you hammer them in. I can get them if you can't get them elsewhere, they make two different sets (one for M3 through M6 and one for M6 through M14) they are $29 and $35 (plus shipping) respectively. Try Lowe's, local hardware store or even local Sears; online try Snap-on or other tool source. If they are really bad you can drill them out with a kit like this it has left hand bits and removal tools (I hope the damaged bolt is one you can get a drill on). sears drill out kit

Good luck I know some of those bolts are hard to get at (I just did mine on the M104 engine).

P.S. I have @home service so I may be incommunicado soon...
